Heavy-duty construction at a low weight.
The Marmot Tungsten UL 3-Person 3-Season Tent's ultra-lightweight materials and construction make it your new go-to when you want to make a lot out of a little. Materials aside, Marmot also gave this tent a design that maximizes living space so you and your hiking partners don't feel like a couple of sardines packed into a tin can at night. Two D-shaped doors make for stealthy and convenient ins and outs throughout the night, while the two vestibules provide plenty of dry storage space for you and both your buddies' camping gear.
Emphasizing weight savings without compromising durability, Marmot used a seam-taped, 30-denier nylon fabric for the floor and fly of the tent. Then it backed the canopy with a no-see-um mesh canopy for a bug-free night out under the stars. Three DAC Pressfit poles make for an easy and secure setup, while the strategic clip placement provides a larger interior volume. Meanwhile, the lampshade pocket is designed to disperse light from a headlamp for a well lit space once the sun sets.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought this tent for two of my friends to use on our weekend adventures. This is what they had to say. "This is a very spacious tent , it was able to fit two of us plus two large duffel bags and still had room. It also has lots of ventilation, almost too much. We just used this tent in the Utah desert and even with the fly on once the wind picked up all the sand was blown in on top of us. Since the entire doors are mesh the sand easily came in. If it is not windy with sand this is a perfect tent since it can withstand a lot!"
Yes.....we get it....it's a three man but truth is my hiking pal and I wanted a tent with room, we wanted it light, and we wanted protection from the elements. Well we found it with the marmot tungsten. We get the fact that it's not an ultralight solution being a two man squad with a three man tent but we made up the difference by hitting leg day at the gym a little more:) no big deal. It held up in the Wind River Range which I believe is a true proving ground for any gear you intend on testing if it's worthy. On another note, my hats off to Marmot....they left out nothing when it came to designing this tent. From the moment we assembled it we knew it was well worth the $$$ Also a big thumbs up to the crew at Backcountry for providing great tech specs which provided all the information we needed in order to make a decision with the tent.
I like the idea of a vented fly to help remove any condensation from developing. However, I have camped through rain storms where the rain is going sideways. Would this vented portion of the fly be susceptible to allowing rain in if the wind was blowing hard enough from the right direction?
Although I'm in New Zealand & you unfortunately don't ship to us :) I still value your input.
For hiking/ car camping which would you recommend between the Marmot Tungsten 3p UL & the MSR Mutha Hubba 3p? Or something else?
I want something durable, lightish for hiking, yet roomy for if I'm stuck in the tent in bad weather reading a book :)
